24/7 care for sensitive teeth
Specially formulated for people with sensitive teeth
Contains fluoride to strengthen teeth and prevent decay
With a gel stripe for extra freshness
Teeth are protected by a hard layer of enamel. If it is damaged or worn away then the dentine underneath may become exposed and this can cause pain.
Gum recession exposing dentine at the gum line
Enamel erosion caused by fizzy, sweet and/or acidic drink
Wearing away of the enamel caused by over enthusiastic brushing
These factors can make your teeth hypersensitive to heat, cold, sweetness, acidity or just when brushing.

Two Minutes, Twice a Day
Positioning the Toothbrush
Step 1: Start with outer and inner surfaces, and brush at a 45-degree angle in short, half-tooth-wide strokes against the gum line. Make sure you reach your back teeth.
Step 2: Move on to chewing surfaces. Hold the brush flat and brush back and forth along these surfaces.
Step 3: Once you get to the inside surfaces of your front teeth, tilt the brush vertically and use gentle up-and-down strokes with the tip of brush.
Step 4: Be sure to brush gently along the gum line.
Step 5: Brush your tongue in a back-to-front sweeping motion to remove food particles and help remove odour-causing bacteria to freshen your breath.
Step 6: Try gently brushing the roof of your mouth for an extra-fresh feeling.
Sensitive teeth may indicate an underlying problem which needs prompt care by a dentist. See your dentist as soon as possible for advice.
